RIP Boonie, 11th April 2013

Posted by HelenEdith on October 27, 2013

We went down to eight cats last April.

On 11th April, I took Boonie to the vet for euthanasia. If I’d realised the extent of his problems, I might have considered it a kindness to have done so sooner, as the vet felt several tumours, which explained his constant hunger coupled with weight loss.

I held Boonie while the final injection was administered and he purred until the injection took effect.

Here is Boonie as I want to remember him:

    So sorry, Helen. One of The Universe’s great injustices is that good guys, particularly cats, don’t keep going, happy and well.
